devoted most of his time to the duties of his office and the larger
interests of the State. He made his home in the Executive
Mansion. He visited every county in the State and in the par-
ticular interest which he took in educational work he officially
visited the normal schools and all the high schools except two-
once or more. He represented the State on large public occa-
sions in various parts of the country. Two expositions took
place during his term as Governor. His address at St. Louis-
was quoted widely because of the historical showing it made
for Maryland. At the Jamestown Exposition he participated
in four of the most important days, making addresses on three
of the occasions. His speech on Maryland Day was a dis-
cussion of the Soiith's relation to the business of the country,
and copies of it were distributed throughout the country, this-
being in addition to the prominent publication it received in the
daily newspapers. Another speech which attracted wide atten-
tion was the one delivered by Governor Warfield before the
Pittsburg Merchants and Manufacturers Association. Still
another was the address at the Paul Jones ceremonies in
Annapolis. Governor Warfield was the guest of the Maryland
Society of 0hio at Springfield, at which meeting the Home
Coming idea for Maryland was launched. The fruition of this
project in October, 1907, culminating on Peggy Stewart Day.
October 19th, gave Baltimore and Maryland one of the greatest
weeks of celebration they had ever known, and attracted thou-
sands of people from every part of the country, including many
distinguished guests.

In Governor Warfield's administration the State House An-
nex Building was completed and the historical features of the
old Senate Chamber were restored to its form and appearance
at the time of the resignation of General Washington of his
commission as Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army;
the work of restoring and preserving- the historical facts and
associations of the State Capitol was carried forward; the col-
lection of historical documents was greatly advanced; the
Maryland flags of the Union and the Confederate Armies were
collected and stored to be guarded as heirlooms of the State;
and the State Museum was established for the assembling of
mementoes associated with the War of the Revolution and the
earlier days of our State. To this Museum went many of the
exhibits of the Maryland Building at the Jamestown Exposition,
and it was Governor Warfield's suggestion that the exhibits at
the Jamestown Exposition be made on lines that would benefit
the permanent Museum at Annapolis.

In his inaugural address Governor Warfield recommended
the passage of a stringent Corrupt Practices Act, and the need
of this legislation he emphasized on every opportunity.
